How To Paint Plastic Auto Parts Yourself (SEM)
How To Paint Plastic Car Parts (aerosol bumper paint) Blog:
In the video above we tackle the most common fix in the industry. You know
when you see those ugly faded plastic bumpers right?
Well, there are 3 ways to fix this eye sore.
1st. you can try to scrub them with some car soap or degreaser and wash the
2nd. you can buy a solution they sell (like a basic rubbing compound) which
works well, and just rub it out. Some ppl use peanut butter! I personally
think that's a little wacky but whatever floats your boat. I'de rather use
come compound. the same compound that you'd use to buff your car.
3rd. If the bumper really looks bad (Paint It!).
That's what we've decided to do in this 7 minute video above.
Keep in mind that this job was a QUCKIE. We didn't bother to fill in the
minor scratches with glaze putty that were on the rear bumper cover. Good
thing. Because I found out that the truck was backed into something a week
later and got ruffed up even more.
The first step to painting plastic parts is to properly clean your plastic.
I prefer lacquer thinner.
REMEMBER: there us a difference between 'paint thinner and 'lacquer
thinner'. You want to use lacquer thinner. Next, pick some cans of SEM
bumper coater. It's good stuff and they also have a formula now where you
don't need to worry about adhesion promoter (stuff to put on the plastic so
your paint sticks).
Mask. Take your time and do a good job. Prep is the most inportant part of
painting. If you do a crapy job masking, the job will look like hell.
You can lightly wet sand your plastic with 600 grit if you wish but I
wouldn't go any courser. The bumper paint is thin and you may have problems
covering. As long as your parts are washed well with lacquer thinner you're
safe to paint directly on your plastic bumper.
Spray 2-3 coats or until full coverage. ...and that's basically it.
Hope you enjoied this post. Feel free to comment and share this post. We
would love to hear back from you!
